Prodrive online Lunchlecture

Developing gradient amplifiers for MRI

On Friday 26-03-2021 from 12:40 until 13:20 Waldur organizes a lunch lecture together with Prodrive.

Gradient coils of a MRI scanners are driven with power full current source amplifiers. These amplifiers are called gradient amplifiers. Prodrive develops and manufactures these amplifiers. The design of a gradient amplifier is a true engineering challenge. High currents (up to 1.2kA) and high voltages (more than 2kV) are combined with very high accuracy (ppm level linearity). This presentation is an introduction to gradient amplifiers and how it keeps the engineers at Prodrive Technologies busy.

The lecture will be given online through MS Teams and you will receive a join link after subscribing for this event. If you still want to join the lecture after 25-03-2021 please also send an email to so we can be sure not to miss your subscription.

We hope to see you at the lecture!
